VIVID SYDNEY: CHRIS LYNCH EXPLORES THE WORLD'S BIGGEST LIGHTS FESTIVAL 


Saturday 30th June, 2018
Welcome to the world’s biggest lights festival. Vivid Sydney has just celebrated its 10th birthday and for 23 nights in the cooler months of May and June, this city is transformed. Sydney’s iconic buildings and harbour become canvasses for art that celebrates the beauty and power of light. Vivid Sydney was named the largest interactive lighting display in the world by the Guinness World Records and it’s not hard to see why. The festival lights up well-known Sydney city areas. The “Light Walk” stretches for more than two kilometres from famous The Rocks suburb through Circular Key. There’s plenty of installations to see along the way. The walk finishes at Australia’s most recognisable building. 23 colourful digital sculptures light up the sails of the Sydney Opera House from projections located across the harbour.

MUPPETS COMPLETE MISSION IN FIJI  


Friday 22nd April, 2016
Over the past week, Sesame Street Muppets have brought laughter to a thousand children in Fiji who have been impacted by Cyclone Winston. Before I visited schools, I was briefed by Fiji Red Cross' health coordinator on the psychological impact of the cyclone. She told me that two months on, many children are still too frightened to attend school. Others run out of their classrooms, frightened at the first sign of wind and rain. A day before we hit the road, I gave Fiji Red Cross staff members an impromptu performance so they could experience first-hand what children could expect. Much to my surprise, when I brought out Grover and Elmo, they reacted with fits of laughter. The Muppets are quite possibly the easiest ice breaker. 

MUPPETS ARRIVE IN FIJI ON A MISSION TO SPREAD JOY 


Monday 18th April, 2016

The world famous Sesame Street Muppets have arrived in Fiji. They’re hoping to put a smile on the faces of children whose schools and villages have been devastated by Tropical Cyclone Winston. Today, Elmo and Grover will meet children who are learning in makeshift tents, as their schools are rebuilt. While it’s important to ensure they’re entertained and escape for a while by laughing along with furry monsters, positive mental health messages and physical health and safety education is top priority for Red Cross.
